    I was going to do this first before i discovered window cleaning... its not as easy as it sounds... .... IF you get a space in a car park of a supermarket or something then thats reeally good.... but its very hard ! :p

    There's a guy that goes to my clients office every month. By pure "coincidence" I happen to be there at the same time. Costs me £60 and he does everything, inside and out, proper wax job and really looks after the car when it's with him.

    It takes him about 4 hours so his hourly rate isn't as much as a windy could make but it's a good service to offer.

    An before Big H says I'm rich, I only do this once a month as a treat! ;)
